Inspired by the origin of diamonds, Luccicare is modeled after a cave environment. By abstracting the forms of stalactites, stalagmites, and cave walls, both the jewelry store and lounge reflect a contemporary cave atmosphere. By warping traditional expectations, the Luccicare jewelry store and lounge creates a previously unavailable social gathering space.
